It was a real suggestion.  But it turns out they don't allow conjugal visits in the UK for some reason.

I can’t understand why dating prisoners would be your reaction to someone finding out they have autism. Unless you’re a turkey too, and then I suppose it makes sense that you’d react that way.

I wasn't reacting to him finding out.  Just saw a few things he posted about relationships, and dating prisoners checked a lot of really hard to check boxes, except there's no conjugals in UK, which I was unaware of when I floated the suggestion.

I undeartand why Wally made the suggestion, and it was no ill will on his part. Ham likes relationships where there is distance and he can just talk to the person without having to be physically with them.

Meanwhile, there are a lot of people in prison who are lonely and would welcome communication with someone from the outside. Seems like it might be a win win, assuming the prisoner isn't in there due to violent crime.

I'm surprised UK doesn't allow conjugal visits. That sucks.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."

Identifying your own unique set of problems is step one to discovering your own unique set of solutions. I hope this diagnosis helps you understand your situation so that you can get where you want to be.

Thank you. I feel super relieved.

Your welcome.

Quote:When I volunteer I input prison information about naughty people at an office. Well that's one of many things I'm doing at the moment. Prison records and stuff. I get a lot done insanely fast lol.

I only turn up about a quarter of the time... about monthly when I'm able to come down weekly. But I still get so much done so fast that they tell me to slow down so they can keep up with me lol. Because I got more done in a few hours than they did in weeks lol.

So really it's similar. I notice you can put together really good quality tracks together sometimes very fast too. Not that I'm the standard for what the average time it takes to put a track together is. The fact that you can type that fast (online)and have an intelligent message says something too. Because you aren't just typing what somebody told you, your processing and responding to info.
Quote:I struggle with consitency, motivation and reliability. And also concentration.Once I'm working I'm working! They let me play music rather loud in my office. That stops me getting bored and ending up staring at the wall and thinking about titties and dinosaurs (not at the same time, dinosaur tits ain't my bag).

Yeah, I like bigger girls sometimes, but a female brontosaurus is just too much woman, er dinosaur for me. 

Quote:Yeah imagine one day if I discover something amazing like a cure for shitty almost all politicians.

You could create the conscience realignment and enhancement device! The problem-getting our shitty politicians to allow it to be imported to the US.

Quote:I think you're awesome too Smile

I joined IDM forums yesterday, btw.

It's really cool! They talk about everything there. But one time I had like.. well it wasn't a feud to me but it may have been to this guy.  He made a duplicate account with part of one of my email addresses as his username. I'm sure he got it through cookies or something. Creepy, but not threatening. There wasn't much I could do, I mean it would be hard to prove he had that as his username as a form of harassment.
Quote:On rare occasions I hear different thoughts stacking on top of each other. It doesn't feel uncomfortable though. I can imagine someone with severe schizophrenic symptoms might have thought stacking rather more frequently, and it would feel uncomfortable, and maybe they wouldn't be able to hear it all at once. It tends to happen when some of my thoughts become automated so then I basically have my conscious thoughts over the top of layers of the automated ones.But when it's like that eavesdropping over people's conversations it can be rather overwhelming. Like, coming home today after my results I was on a train that was super duper crowded and I felt really stressed out about how incredibly loud it felt when I could hear people talking normal volume but I could hear so many different conversations going on at once and I couldn't tune it out. Just incessant chatter about bollocks. Not testicles.
Yeah like I awhile ago I was in Wal-mart and the schizo symptoms hit me at the same time as the blood sugar (type 2 diabetes) symptoms. Even though I was pretty sure most of what i was hearing was real it seemed so disjointed that it was almost as bad as hallucinations. I was picking up on  stuff from al over the immediate area. But luckily I don't get like that too often any more. I'm really not sure how I would do in a conversation with more than 3 people.

Dude I would NEVER date a female serial killer. Unless she was really really smoking hot Razz

Ideally I much prefer a physical relationship but the person has to be just right and pretty fucking tolerant of what I'm like lol.

If I fell in love with someone long distance hard enough, I'd feel like I missed out on something really big if I never met them.

Actually living with someone is still a big step but if they were the right person who let me be alone every now and then I'm sure I'd be fine.

But then, I have such a high sex drive that unless they did too it probably be them that wanted to be left alone lol.

I could live with someone that didn't fall out with me, was the love of my life and had sex with me several times a day.

Or, I could live a with a fuck buddy if they fucked me daily and then left me alone when they weren't fucking me.

Or I could talk with someone all day. But no nagging or suggestions for me to actually change my behavior it's goodbye lol.

But luckily I don't get like that too often any more. I'm really not sure how I would do in a conversation with more than 3 people.

In a big group of people I can not say a word for half an hour and then when there's a silence I can make a comment and I'd talk for half an hour by myself if no one stopped me and I didn't run out of things to say.

I hate interrupting people and there's always someone talking in a group, pretty much, so I feel I can't say anything because it would be an interruption.

But once I'm talking I just keep talking if I don't run out of things to say... I think aloud.... and I have no way of really telling whether I'm going on too much or if people are not interested (sometimes I've worried and stopped and then I've been told what I'm saying is interesting and urged to go on, so I've given up trying to guess)...so I just let other people interrupt me and when they do I'll stop talking even mid sentence.

When it comes to typing though... I don't stop mid sentence if someone responds because an unfinished written sentence seems a lot more nonsensical to me than an unfinished spoken sentence. I don't like how the unfinished sentence is just left there when I send an unfinished message. So I always finish my messages. But then when someone responds I read what they write before responding. I tend to over do the responses and send too many messages though. But I get carried away.

There's an autistic girl from wrongplanet.com who I've been friends with for a long while now, she even posted a thread on AF just to say hi and that she was my friend. Anyways, we have this thing where she likes me to only post one message at a time... so I edit stuff in and add to it if I feel I've forgotten something I wanted to say. (Or often I post my messages before I've finished what I'm saying.... so 3 messages feel like 1 big message... they kind of run into each other).

I find it really difficult and sometimes I'll accidentally write 2 or 3, (or 6, lol) extra messages when I'm all over excited and overenthusiastic about something... but I'm getting better at it.

Prisoners aren't often alone in their cell so they often don't have the prerequisite masturbatory privacy to have a long distance relationship with me.

Maybe some hot woman in solitary confinement if she's only killed like 4 people.

I am pretty sure I'd get bored of pen-pal-fucking a female serial killer after the first few wanks.

Lol the above sentence would be funny to quote me on out of context.

And to be honest, I like my long distance cyber sex to be higher speed than fucking pen pal. Lol. For starters, I don't have a printer and I'd rather shove a small nuclear device up my arse than write to someone by hand.

And I doubt female serial killers are allowed Skype, an internet connection and masturbatory freedom. Tongue

(mmm juicy wet prison bed sheets from female murderess lady parts).

Hell, if that kind of freedom was allowed after serial killing, it wouldn't even feel like much of a punishment. Lol.

Oh wait... you're talking about other criminals besides serial killers. Well that's just boring.

Here's some more information on my condition in case anyone is interested:

And here's the intro to it:

Quote:Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the name for a range of similar conditions, including Asperger syndrome, that affect a person's social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour.

What signs did your mom say you had in childhood? And how come they never got help for you?

RE: Autism Spectrum Disorder
Sometimes I wonder if we aren't doing more harm than good by categorizing people like this.  People used to simply be "different."  Was that such a bad thing?  The word wasn't even coined until 1911 and then only to refer to schizophrenics.  Now it has exploded to the point where the scale is so vast that it seems to be everywhere.  They pump kids full of ritalin or other drugs at the drop of a hat these days because they can't sit still in class and the schools hate that so they are willing co-conspirators with the drug industry because they want obedience.  I don't know.  It seems to me that someone is making a whole lot of money off of this.

I'm probably just being a cranky old fart, again. 

Anyway, Hammy.  As far as I'm concerned you're fine.

This has crossed my mind as well, but upon further research and watching my nephew, I've come to believe it really is a disorder in brain function rather than just a personality trait. I'd love to think you were right though.
